RECIPE: Pork and Apples with Stuffing (super simple!!)

I'm sure this "recipe" originates somewhere, but it's so simple that it's not even really a recipe. My sister told my mom how to make it, and then she told me. My mom first made this back in 2010 when I broke my jaw. My jaw was wired shut for six weeks, and because I was high on pain killers unable to really cook (nor did I want to, because I couldn't even eat!), we got meals from lots of family and friends.

I can't even describe how grateful I am for that--my kids were five and seven years old at the time, and I wasn't able to do much for a month or so. When I stop and think of things I am grateful for, the month of November 2010 contains about 75% of those thoughts!

Anyway, my mom made this dinner for my family (while I drank yet another fruit/Ensure smoothie). Jerry couldn't stop raving about it--as one naturally does when his wife can't even take a single bite to taste it--and when I finally broke out of the wires and was able to eat solid food, I made it myself. It's SO easy and simple, and it's delicious! 

(There is pork underneath the apples and stuffing, I promise! Hahaha, I just tend to load up on more of the "sides" and less of the meat in meals.)

There are only four ingredients (or five, in my case)...

Here is a printer-friendly version!


6 boneless pork chops (I used several smaller ones--you just want enough to put in a single layer in a 9x13 dish)
1 can of apple pie filling
1 box of pork-flavored stuffing (like Stove Top)
6 Tbsp. of butter
1 large apple (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350 F. Open the can of pie filling and spread across the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. I wanted some more apples, so I peeled and sliced a large apple and spread that across the pie filling. Arrange the (raw) pork chops on the pie filling (I used thin pork chops--if you use thick cut ones, you'll want to bake longer).

Place the butter in a large bowl and throw it in the microwave for about one minute, checking after 30 seconds or so until it's melted. Once the butter is melted, add the stuffing mix and stir it together (do not add water or anything else). 

Spread the stuffing mix evenly over the pork chops. Cover with foil and bake for about 35-40 minutes, until pork chops are cooked through (use a meat thermometer to check). Remove the foil and bake for about 3-4 more minutes to crisp the stuffing a little.
